Miamism Fridays – Happy Birthday Miami


Tom Schaefer’s work, aka Miami Tom, was chosen for the photography exhibition at the Miami Airlines Arena’s celebration of Miami’s Birthday, this past Wednesday (July 28th, 2010).  Here’s what went down:

The City of Miami and DowntownMiami.com have come together to present the Official celebration for the 114th birthday of the City of Miami.  This is the first of what will become a signature yearly celebration at the heart of the city, Downtown Miami. City of Miami residents and professionals will be getting together at the American Airlines Arena in Celebration of Miami’s 114th Birthday and also to recognize the very best that Downtown Miami has to offer in the return of Downtown Miami’s Best in its 2010 edition. This special event will feature the sights, sounds and tastes of Miami at the exciting American Airlines Arena’s center court.  Intercontinental Miami will be presenting the official birthday cake with a replica of the American Airlines Arena, there will be delicious food tastings from 20+ restaurants, cocktails courtesy of GREY GOOSE® Vodka, … and much more!

….another Miamism !!

Congrats Tom!!

  1. Although I have a 40 minute ride home to the Northern Tundra ( N. Broward ) whenever I leave the “Beach”, I look forward to the spectacular view of the downtown skyline, which seems to become more beautiful with every trip.

    With the arrival of the “KING”, our triple “A” is poised to become the centerpiece of all things exciting and fun about downtown N the “Magic City.”

    One question, what is the location of the pic, lower left. I cant make it out.

    When will this celebration take place.

  2. Keith,
    The lower left photo is in South Pointe Park – the light fixtures are sculptural and the park is gorgeous …you should definitely go visit (one of Miami’s well done public spaces).

    As for the celebration, it took place last wednesday…I’ll include photos Tom sent to me from that day.

  3. Alex, it’s a lifeguard station and I agree Tom’s photos are phenomenal
